According to the Finnish Nuclear Power Plant satellite, Rosa is intensifying into the tenth hurricane in the eastern Pacific
NASA-NOAA’s Finland nuclear power plant satellite passed over the eastern Pacific as Tropical Storm Rosa was intensifying into the tenth hurricane in that ocean.
On September 25, the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on board NASA-NOAA’s Finland nuclear power plant satellite provided a visible photograph of tropical storm Rosa. The VIIRS image showed strong thunderstorms around the orbit and thick thunderstorms circling the center from the north and east.
At 11 a.m. EDT (1500 UTC), Hurricane Rosa Center was located near 16.1 degrees north latitude and 111.4 degrees west. It is 510 miles (820 km) west-southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico. Rosa is moving towards the west-northwest near 17 km / h, and this general movement is forecast to continue for the next two days. A northwest turn is expected on Saturday morning. The maximum sustained wind has rapidly risen to nearly 120 mph and gusts more, and rapid gains are forecast to continue tonight.
A major hurricane is expected in Rosa on Thursday, September 27th.
